This book is about… well, I guess ultimately it’s about the question “What is thought?”  The whole thing is woven together from dialogues and writings on the subjects of mathematics, music, art, programming, logic, and several other things.  It’s by no means dull, though… quite the opposite, really.  It’s also quite comprehensible, the author does make sure to use fairly simple language.  I was able to read it just fine despite having never even been to high school as of yet, so I think most of you shouldn’t have trouble with it.  Unfortunately, though, it doesn’t seem to be available in the Onondaga County system, so you’ll have to get it on inter-library loan.  Trust me, though– it’s worth it.  This book will get you to think in a whole new way about things.  Concluding this paragraph now, this review has been written by Zerbie, who is writing a self-referential sentence right now, which makes reference to its own self-referentiality, which makes reference to the fact that it makes reference to its own self-referentiality…

    Well, I’d suggest reading the book! And by the way, it appears that it actually is available in the Onondaga County system– I was mistaken.
